The steps sequence in The Untouchables was itself an homage to the Odessa steps sequence in The Battleship Potemkin by Eisenstein. At least, I've always thought so.

This movie turned me against cops forever. Right at the end where they tell Ness that Prohibition is on the way out and ask him what he'll do. "Have a drink." Oh you despicable, hypocritical scumbag. He killed people over a law which he admits freely makes no sense and to which he is, apparently, opposed. Just because it's a law. Even as a kid it struck me as unforgivable. Never fully trusted a cop since.
